    I would say she is a grey. My filly started to grey around her eyes, ears and muzzle and flecking through the coat. We were sure she would drop the coat and grey out early but she seems darker than ever. Your pony may never go really white, but all the same she is lovely the way she is **)

    Here is a pic of Ruby, she will definately end up being a grey

    Now this is a pic of a mare someone said was my girl, by that we could of found out my girls breeding, colour etc.
    Thay are almost identicle but the brands just dont match up.


    this is my boys mum!!! she is the same age as the mare in question, are they are remarkably the same. The brands on your mare Remaani look new are they? I know the mare in this photo very well. Is your mare over height?

    Just PM'd you PH, lol.
    The mare above is Tollie Park Elderberry, 37" mare.
    Sadly not my mare but dont they look SOOOO similar, my girl Angel is about 32.5" so not the same mare, sadly.
    Brands on Angel look new as i clipped them out.

    It was Pinto Lover that emailed me that pic & said it was Angel, but nope im afraid, so im back to square 1 in finding out who my girl is.

    (i do know where that mare above is atm though)

    In my opinion she is a grey. I find she is very similar to my mare Spice, who is reg as a grey.
    She was a chocolate brown whrn younger but is now a dppley grey but with very definate brown hairs flecked through her coat.
    She goes much paler in the winter and darkens up more in summer but is gradually getting lighter with each shed.

    Pics taken at around 14 months, 2 years, 3 years and 6 years.
